“American Idol” finalist Adam Lambert has filmed a contribution to the “It Gets Better” campaign by The Trevor Project, which is in response to the rash of bullied gay youth committing suicides.

Lambert says, “It gets better. It seems hard. I think being different is always going to be a tough climb. There’s always people that are scared of it. But at the end of the day, you give those bullies and people that are so ignorant and fearful of their lifestyle, if you give them the power to affect you, you’re letting them win and they don’t deserve that.”

“What you’re doing by being who you are is you’re keeping it real and you’re being really brave. I believe in you, I think it’s great. There are a ton of us out here in this world that are just like you and believe in you.”

“I’m living my dream and even I get bullied. You look under any comment areas on any article and there’s bullies in there … I’m singled out and it’s all gay, gay, gay, gay, gay, even though there’s so much more to me than who I choose to sleep with.”

“You have to be strong and you have to pay attention to the positive.”
